I would like to send my deepest apologies to the White family. I am truly sorry for your loss. Seeing a picture of your young son brought tears to my eyes. This obituary reminds me that death is not man's friend, but his enemy. A great majority of people do not want to die because we were not created this way. The reason why this happens is because of Adam's sin.

God is not cruel and like it brought a tear to my eyes to see your son, it deeply pains him as well. in the bible it says God is love. Since he is love, he has provided a means to undo Adam's mistake. God's solution to the problem of death is found at Revelation 21:4 where it reads, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The former things have passed away."

Jehovah promises that we will see our dead loved ones again. Although this is an extremely sad occasion and I know you have shed many tears, God is willing and able to wipe them all away. Please if you need anything or have any questions you may contact me at kingdom_hope@yahoo.com
